A book about New Mexico. Do I need to say anything more? Yes, laced with religion, hardship, faith, war and the landscape, not to mention rife with power names that still resonate through the high desert and the Sangres, this book is legendary in the Land of Enchantment. Willa Cather is to blame for Death Comes for the Archbishop. She is long gone but won the Pulitzer in 1923 to give you some time frame. This book feels light, but that is the sign of a masterpiece. It will live in my truck until I can pass it along. Get it, read it.
